Extremely helpful if you want to start using Raspberry Pi. Gives you the required knowledge to kickstart your Raspberry Pi learning and you get a hint of python programming as well which is useful
It was very good, all the basics about python and the raspberry pi platform. I would like if you publish a book to read about the topics, for example I have been reading the book "Think Python".

Nice course, but could be better supported.
Video: On Programs on whiteboard several wrong syntax (UC/LC writing)
Better: Not just there's the doc on web - study it - rather point on important things on doc and make tests.
End of week 4: Second link to program is missing, when making peer review, everyone can learn so much from each other.
Pi Hardware: I missed awfully electric characteristics on GPIO. Looking on the web, anyone was talking about this matter (max. 50mA total all outputs, max. 3-16mA ?? each...). A little electronics guide how to dimension LED resistors and pullups / pullsdowns and how to drive relais would be nice. Many student know surely less about electronics, but to interact with IoT it is nessecary.
Coursera: Not on all platforms (iPad i.e.) you can make positive comments when reviewing.

Although I missed the input of TAs, mentors and the Professor and didn't find the generalised thread as useful as the classic Coursera forums I still found the course to be interesting. As with the Arduino course I found the Demos to be the best part. I'm hoping I'll learn a lot in the second RPi interfacing course. I think it would be especially good if the RPi and the Arduino were connected in the next or some later course. I think also that some interaction between the Professor and the material on the presentation would enhance the lessons. What I enjoyed most was actually writing the programs and getting the circuits to work.

So far good. I really like the "smaller detail without too much detail" approach. The RaspberryPi is easy to master given excellent support by the Pi Foundation but then there is little too much to access. This course kind of streamlines what one needs to know. I have been using the Pi since 2 months but already feeling more confident thanks to this course and I have just finished only Module 1.

I am a newbie with R.Pi so this course help me a lot in the studying process with R.Pi. I gain many new interesting knowledge.
I wish the learner could take the quizzes and know the results without upgrade, that would be better. I agree once the learner need to print the results and some official certificate, so need to upgrade.

I had already completed assignment. But due to your recommendation of resetting timelines, my whole study is now shown as null in the website. Pls generate my certificate as I have already done this course. Why the timeline has been completely changed!
Very disgusting! Kindly generate my certificate as soon as possible!!
By Jeff R•
Good course, but I expected something a little more detailed and to last a little longer. The videos were good, but w little long for the amount of content that they contained. For instance, a few videos could be compressed to the size of one video and still contain the relevant content.

I liked this course. There were no alternatives of the course covering such subject before and I am glad of appearance of this course. I rated it 4 stars, because there still is space for course improvement, but I recommend very strongly to attend it if you are interested in subject.

A very good introductory course on using Raspberry Pi with Python. The only drawback for me is that in the course a lot of time is given to using Raspberry Pi as a desktop with a monitor, keyboard and graphical interface, and not as an IoT device.
Since it's the penultimate course of the certification, I expected to contain more practice projects. It's the only downside from my opinion. Course material is excellent, and instructor knows what he is talking about.

Good Introduction to both platforms:
Nice and simple teaching however, I didn't prefer the peer evaluation as my certificate would be delayed by their submission.
By DAVID I R•
Content is interesting, even the Twitter section (which looks unrelated to the main goal of the course). Some classes were recorded using Python 2 while the course targets Python 3.
By Ikseon K•
This is very introductory course for Raspberry Pi using Python programming. It is worth of taking this course. Very helpful for understanding how RPi works. Thanks!
By Don R•
Solid technical content and good presentation. Course experience was impacted negatively by lack of discussion forums. No interaction with fellow students.
By Joaquin G•
Excellent course! I think that it could touch more difficult topics and homework could involve some deeper practice regarding programming and hardware.
By Michael A•
Compact training for starting with the Raspberry Pi platform. I recommend it because all relevant aspects for working with this platform are included.
By Dimitrios K•
very nice material for someone who learn raspberry for the first time..but i believe this course doent walk you very far..its very very introductory
By Deleted A•
Nice course. Gives a good thousand-foot view of the Pi, Python programming, and how you can use Python to manipulate the GPIO pins on the Pi.
By Tuomas V•
Good for total beginners. If you have even some level of experience with programming/fiddling with computers this is too slow paced.
By Iain M•
A nice, if a little basic, introduction to the Raspberry Pi Single Board Computer and to controlling the Raspberry Pi using Python.
By Susmith D K•
good course .you need raspberry pi to study along and is better to see some basic videos of raspberry pi before starting course.
By Marcelo J R•
Good course, professor Ian is very good. Only I miss a more deep discussion and maybe more complex assignments. Thanks a lot!
By Andreas G•
This course provides a brief intro into python programming for raspberry pi, which is easy to understand on beginner level
By Sarah A•
very good for beginners and only enough information to get you started with raspberry pi for small hardware projects
By Raul I R G•
Good for anybody that want to start learning Raspberry Pi. Lectures are concise and get you experimenting quick.
By Rajesh K•
I am new to Linux, this course teaches handful of commands to use RaspberryPi and great details about python.
